No. Just no.  Stop trying to profit off of every single piece of land on this planet.

Oh, these are not at the Rim, says they're 20 minutes away. I'm wondering if they are out near the entrance to the park, where the Imax is and all of that... Because then you get to listen to helicopters all day long. 20 years ago, I was doing a construction job up there, and there was a helicopter from one of the 3-4 companies right there taking off every 10 minutes, all day long. "Glamping", my ass..

LOL, even worse. It's 20 miles from even the entrance, halfway to Williams. Might even be near where the Flintstone Village used to be. Don't worry, Valle, AZ isn't anywhere close to damaging the Canyon, it's really in BFE.

I hate the word "glamping."

Everybody who uses it seems to be an asshole.

Why go through all the trouble and expense of Burning Man when you can freeze your ass off in a geodesic dome right here?

That reminds me, I was at the local diner and craving a plate of eggs Benedict. Well moments later the waiter dropped an old Ford hubcap of eggs and sauce in front of me.
"What's up with the hubcap?" I asked.
"Well," said the waiter, "There's no plate like chrome for the hollandaise."

The 1987 Minnesota Twins agree.

I can do the same thing and have my own stuff with me. The North Rim has some great camping spots and even better views than the South Rim. This pic is from the tippy top of Monterey Bay in CA.

That thing looks like it's cold as f*ck in the winter. It sure ain't no hogan. They should get some Navajos to build them some. The cubic footage on a dome doesn't lend itself well to central heating. My high school knows that. This thing is a fortune to heat in winter:

We should all get frequent flier miles for how far we had to go for that joke.

You see...
Whether igloo, hut, or lean-to,
Or a geodesic dome,
There's no structure I have been to
Which I'd rather call my home.

Fine.  Repeal the outer space treaties so that we can start profiting of the land on other worlds.

A local company is giving 'glamping' or glorified camping a whole new meaning.

I thought it was glamorous. I suppose either works as long as it's used pejoratively.

Yeah, but don't tell everyone about the North Rim, its relatively sparse tourist trade is part of why it's so special. :-)

Spent a summer working there in '97, still the best summer of my life. South Rim is pretty much like going to the mall.

OMG that thing just exudes the uninformed optimism of the "Space Age".

Glamping is just camping with way too much stuff.   Vehicle camping is particularly well suited to a descent into full-on hedonism.

Yeah. Cost $13 Million when it was built, which is about $39 Million in today's money. We used Tucson Electric Power's taxes on the coal plant to build it plus our auditorium, which was supposed to be $11 M, but after all the delays, it was practically free in construction costs.

I do seem to recall someone saying that it didn't cost the school district anywhere near what you would expect...
